Privacy Policy

This policy was last updated on January 24, 2024.

Privacy policies are boring to read and to write, yo,
So I'll give writing a rhyming privacy policy a go.

You see, your privacy is important to me,
That's why I have to have one of these legally.

How do I collect your data? You'll find out below.
How is your data used? I'll let you know!

By using this website, you agree to this policy.
If any changes are made, the date at the top will change, you see.

Rhyming not your thing? No worries, but, honestly, that's kind of lame,
If you prefer, you can also read the boring version (as shown by its name).

A blog privacy policy that people will actually read (because it's totally not boring)

About And Next Comes L

And Next Comes L is an independently operated blog run by me.
The name is Dyan Robson. Based in Canada, is where I be.

This website shares sensory activities for kids, it's true.
It expanded to include hyperlexia and autism resources as it grew.

I also make a lot of free printable resources for you.
Whether you're a teacher or a parent, there's always something new.

How Information is Collected

There a few main ways that your information is collected.
One of those ways is: you loved a post and then you commented.

However, commenting on posts is no longer available, you'll see,
Because keeping up with them was simply too much for me.

Yet, your info is collected when you subscribe to my email list,
Take the quiz, grab the handbook, or fill in any forms that exist.

It is also collected when you purchase something from the store
Or click on a banner for something you simply can't ignore!

I also use cookies - sadly, not the yummy ones you eat -
To store information about visitor preferences - it's really quite neat!

By the way, Google Analytics is something I use too.
It gives me information on website traffic from visitors like you.

Information is collected when you join the Hyperlexia Hub (it's free).
Or book a support session to chat about hyperlexia with me.


If you decide to join this awesome newsletter of mine,
Your first name and email address are required, if that's fine.

We require your email address in order to send emails to you.
Your name helps me personalize the emails a bit better too!

You're welcome to use a pseudo-name, if you'd like instead,
So pick something fun like Mrs. Awesome or Mr. Poopyhead.

Then all the emails will be addressed accordingly
And make you giggle with each email you see.

At the bottom of each email, there's a link to unsubscribe, okay?
You may unsubscribe any time and any day.

If you are having trouble unsubscribing or need help from me,
Send an email to You'll be removed promptly.

Flodesk is who I use to send my emails each week.
Their terms of service is here, if you want to take a peek.

Segments are used within Flodesk to track your visits and actions,
So that future emails can be better tailored to your needs and get reactions.

Currently, a minimum of two emails per week you will receive.
Occasionally, I'll email you about products and promotions you'll like, I believe.

Most of the printables on my blog are free, free, free,
But sometimes you have to complete a form, you see.

Don't worry, your email and name are never sold or given away.
Your information is kept safe and I'll keep it that way.

All my emails are CAN-SPAM compliant, it's true,
So every email contains these things too:

Information on how to contact the sender - that's me -
And a link to unsubscribe so you can be set free.


Once upon a time, you could leave comments and feedback,
But, alas, comments are something this website now lacks.

You might still see old comments, from time to time.
Those comments are public, visible to eyes beyond mine.

While anyone can read the comments that others did write,
Their email address is never shared or disclosed, alright?

But their name and comment will definitely show.
Inappropriate, spammy, or profane comments? Away they go!

I reserve the right to remove bad comments without notice, okay.
But anything helpful or constructive will certainly stay.

Store Purchases

It's true that Shopify is the platform of choice
For the And Next Comes L store - it's certainly noice!

Your name, email, and country are required during the checkout process.
The country is required because EU VAT taxes are a confusing mess!

But I need to know if this tax should be applied to you.
That's why I need to know if the country you're in, is in the EU.

Obviously, I need your email to send the products digitally,
And your name is needed so you can be addressed personally.

The details you enter are stored by the third parties mentioned above,
All payments are handled by them and not me, which I love.

Sometimes I sell products via affiliate programs too.
Each program collects and retains their own data, much like I do.

Information collected by these affiliate programs are not accessible by me,
So to learn more about these programs, read their policies.


Cookies provide useful information on things you do on my blog.
Then store user-specific information into a log.

These cookies aren't delicious, they're really quite bland,
But here are some of our cookie brands:

I use cookies from Amazon. Here's what they do.
They help me advertise products and make a small commission, it's true.

There's Google Analytics cookies too.
They track website traffic and the behavior of visitors like you.

Remember my email service provider, Flodesk is the name?
They have cookies here to help with my segmenting game.

Then there's the cookies for Gravitec that I use
To send timely push notifications to you, if you choose.

I can't forget the cookies for the hyperlexia quiz tools.
For that I use Interact - here are their cookie rules.

Alas, that's all the cookies in this cookie jar,
They help to make your experience here better, near or far.

Google Analytics

In order to continually provide valuable information to you,
And Next Comes L uses Google Analytics, like most websites do.

This service tracks website usage and user behavior, yes,
Which I can use to adapt the content here, so I don't have to guess.

It gives me aggregated data about location, gender, interests, and age.
It may also capture your IP address when you click around and engage.

User and event data will not expire automatically, FYI,
And is used for "creating unusual custom reporting" - that's straight from them, not I.

But don't worry, I have no way to personally identify you.
So yep, this also uses those boring internet cookies, it's true.

Hyperlexia Hub Community

The Heartbeat app is where we host this free community.
To create an account, your name and email are a necessity.

You'll also be asked where you live so what's your country's name?
It's needed to tailor your hub experience. No two accounts are the same.

By email, you'll receive community updates each and every week.
No longer interested in the hub? Deactivation is likely what you seek.

All information is kept private, my lips are sealed.
Nothing about you will ever be revealed.

Support Sessions

Have questions? Need support? I've got you covered!
Paid support sessions are something that's definitely offered.

Monthly parent groups on Zoom and individual calls too.
Simply check your schedule and click book is all you need to do.

I used to use Book Like a Boss for this service in the past,
but now I use Tidycal to book sessions with you so fast!

Your name and email are collected, of course, it's true.
How else would I send confirmation and reminders to you?

Additional information is collected for a one-to-one call
So that I can make the most of our session with y'all.

All payments are processed by the services I use, not me.
Your information is always kept private and confidential, you see.

Hyperlexia Quiz

Wondering if you're hyperlexic or if your child is?
If so, then perhaps you'll take our hyperlexia quiz.

Interact is the service that I use for this tool.
It helps make the quiz look polished, engaging, and cool.

You'll be prompted to enter your email and name at the end
So your results from the quiz can be sent your way, my friend.

Your results will tag you in my email service, Flodesk, too.
So that way you'll receive information relevant to you.

Your information is kept private. Yes, indeed.
Read the newsletter section above for more info, if you need.

Advertisements on And Next Comes L

Since blogging is my job, after all,
And Next Comes L runs advertisements via Mediavine for y'all.

They may use cookies or web beacons when they advertise here,
In order to show tailored ads to you, every day of the year.

They want to attempt to throw off my rhyming flow,
So the required blurb from them is down further below.

I'm afraid I can't tweak it and make it less legalese-y,
But at least I could copy and paste it. So easy!

Social Media Privacy

I'm on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest too!
I use various social media platforms. Yes, I sure do.

But anything you post on my social media channels is up to you,
So know that I'm not responsible for anything you say or do.

Parental Consent

Hey you, if you are under 16 years old,
You must have your parent's permission first, so do as you're told.

Final Notes on this Privacy Policy

You have the right to access your personal data - you bet you do -
And know how your data is processed for you.

Hopefully this privacy policy explained all of it awhile ago.
And entertained you enough to read the entire policy, though.

Personal info will not be transferred or shared, it's true.
Unless, of course, I'm legally obligated to.

Your info can be removed from my systems at any time,
Please contact, but no need to rhyme.

FYI, And Next Comes L contains links to other websites.
Just note, I'm not responsible for the privacy policies and your rights.

If you have questions or concerns about this privacy policy,
Send an email to and addressed to me.

The Mediavine Blurb that I Have to Include (And That Subsequently, Ruins my Rhyming Flow...)
